DMP Assistant is a bilingual tool for preparing data management plans (DMPs). The tool follows best practices in data stewardship and walks researchers step-by-step through key questions about data management.
DMP Assistant was adapted from the (UK) Digital Curation Centre’s DMPOnline tool and is hosted at
the University of Alberta. The French user interface was produced with support from the Université
de Montréal Library. It is freely available to all
researchers in Canada and provides specialized guidance to help researchers utilize the tool to
develop their plan. It also offers the option of fulfilling DMP requirements of specific funders (listed below) or
using templates from other organizations.
- Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI)
- Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)
- Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)
- Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)
